Packers' Wynn welcomes newborn son hours before game

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Just Wynn, baby.

Even before kickoff, Super Bowl Sunday was a big day for Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Jarius Wynn, who was present for the birth of his son at a Dallas-area hospital.

Wynn, a sixth-round draft pick in 2009, was released by the Packers on Sept. 4, just before the start of this season. But he was re-signed Sept. 14 after a season-ending knee injury to defensive lineman Justin Harrell.

Wynn has played sporadically in a reserve role since rejoining the Packers. He played in the Packers' first two playoff games, but he was inactive for the NFC Championship Game at Chicago.
